TTUT - Do you get excited about VD?

 I got a text from a funny girl this morning.  It said "Happy VD" - totally made my morning!  What?  You don't joke incessantly about VD with your friends?  Whatever.

So is the big V-day a big deal around your house?  Here - not so much.  I mean we always get a little something for the kids, and help them get valentines prepared for their friends.  But really it's just another day around here - and I'm okay with that.  I'd rather my husband save his money to take me to soccer games.  And I KNOW he feels the same.  I probably will make him take me out to breakfast after I finish writing this post.  But that's more of a "craving Eggs Benedict" thing than a Valentine's Day thing.

Speaking of the kids' valentines.  Remember when I posted here about the last minute valentines that the kids and I put together?  Here's a reminder shot:

Well, we needed to come up with something for our really good friends who go to a different school as well.  And I wanted to do something a little more special than what the kids gave to their classmates.  I decided that we could give each of the kids a whole package of the cute Valentine's pencils with the cute little heart attached to it.  But as I went down the (extremely crowded) Valentine's aisle, I saw something even BETTER!  So here's what we did:

Don't you just love giant pencils??

Here's a size comparison:

I hope they like them!  And I hope Tanielle doesn't read my blog before we get a chance to deliver them!

In other news...I do have a Tackle It Tuesday I have been working on since LAST Tuesday - it's a biggie.  You'll have to wait until next week (I hope) for the reveal.

I'm linking up with the ever fabulous Shawn and IA for TTUT.

Seriously Shawn

Seriously giant anything is better. And that definitely includes bars of chocolate...which I'm suddenly craving. Damn me for being so good at the grocery store last night.

Hope the kids love the VD gifts. And hope no one needs an antibiotic after VD day.

I am not a fan of the VD myself ;) I cannot stop saying it. Seriously...I'll stop.

I totally love to say Happy VD! And in high school, I really wished VD's on some skanky bitches.

I LOVED to write with ginormous pencils in school! That is a fabulous idea! I'm sure her friends will adore them!

Thanks for linking up with us Sweetness! xoxo

Oh I'd so be in. I love office supply type things, and pencils are included in that. Super cute. In fact I buy the giant ones for my step-daughter every time I find them.

Valentine's is not a huge deal at our house, either. Usually keep it fairly simple.

And...you won my giveaway! Check your email~ I sent you info about how to get your "prize". :)

So cute, Xazmin!! I love big pencils...they're so fun to write with.

I was going to go all "mind-in-the-gutter" on this comment, but decided to keep it clean. ;)

Happy VD!

Happy VD! Spread the love!

See what I did there?

I'm a dork.

Stacy Uncorked said...

Darn it! jennykate77 beat me to the joke I was going to write. Glad I have a fellow dork around here. ;)

LOVE the giant pencils! And a great idea - I think I'll have to adopt that great idea for Princess Nagger next year. :)

Happy VD!

Valentine’s Day, (Possible) Near-Sighted Princess, The End of a Crappy Schedule

Those giant pencils are awesome! And I love the little quote that you attached to the gifts!!! Cute!!

I love the gint pencils AND the cute little heart quote! So precious! I didn't have time to do anything creative.

VD isn't a huge day around here either. I do not require presents. Although, I did get up and cook a good breakfast for them.

Shawn said...
